G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Yearbook Collection

I’ve misplaced the solicitation information, but IDW will be reprinting all of the old school Marvel series Yearbooks, which is awesome.  There were four them in total, and they were all pretty impressive stories and had some terrific art, to boot.  The Michael Golden Oktober Guard from Yearbook #2 pretty much redefined those characters.  Good stuff.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Daytona 500 TV Spot Screencap Gallery

It’s a tradition unlike any other!  No, not the Daytona 500 itself, the dissection of the latest G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailer or TV spot via screencap gallery!

Like all the other trailers and TV spots, I ran this one through the ole software and pulled apart lots of great screen grabs, so big thanks to for uploading in HD!  Not a whole lot of new stuff.  Some clearer images (compared to yesterday’s TV spot) and a few new details.  Love the shot of the Ripsaw jumping into the air.  Also love the little touch like what appears to be a Cobra logo lapel pin on the Secret Service Agent who Colton is whipping the ass of.  Little attentions to detail like that are very cool.

Also a scene with Zartan as The President possibly talking to…the REAL president?  Tough to tell, but almost seems like it.  Good stuff.  Check out the images below, and as always, these will be mirrored on the G.I. Joe: Retaliation SuperPage.

New G.I. Joe: Retaliation TV Spot from Daytona 500

My fellow podcast host Gary first reported this afternoon that a new G.I. Joe: Retaliation TV Spot had aired during the Daytona 500 via his Twitter feed.  I don’t traditionally watch racing, but thankfully the guys at jumped on the TV and captured the TV spot in glorious HD.

You can see it on YouTube and embedded below.  Lots of recycled footage, but also some cool new snippets as well, specifically of the Ripsaw taking a flying leap and Joe Colton kicking some Secret Service ass.  Excellent.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation TV Spot Screencaps

Part of the reason I love doing these screen caps so much is that upon first watch, you don’t really notice many new details with the latest G.I. Joe: Retaliation TV Spot, but once I broke it down into screen caps, some more stuff became evident.

The explosion near the middle of the TV spot, for instance, seems to reveal a bit more of what looks like a Cobra HISS.  Also a very cool group shot of Roadblock, Jinx, Snake Eyes, and Flint.

Granted, only a few scant seconds of new footage, but at this point, I think we’ll all digest whatever we can get.  Good stuff!

Episode 43 of What’s on Joe Mind online featuring Ryan Penagos

It’s been a crazy recording week this week for the What’s on Joe Mind crew…heck for most of them it’s been a crazy few weeks!  We spent some time this past week talking to various different folks at different levels of the geek stratosphere, but perhaps none with such a large following as Ryan Penagos, AKA Agent M on Twitter.  As Executive Editorial Director for he has his hands in many different pies, and is of course, a social media mastermind.

We interrogate him about Marvel Comics, Marvel Studios, Twitter, and even manage to sneak in some G.I. Joe related discussion.  Check it out on our Podbean page, or listen to the embedded player below.  Click the Read the Rest of the Story link below the player for the show notes.
